Video on Playing with Your Five Month Old
Your five old is no longer amused by the sight of toys hanging over his crib. He wants toys that he can grasp and feel for himself. He also explores these toys with his mouth. Give him safe and age appropriate toys that he can play with. Help him look at both you and him in a mirror from different angles. Play with your five month old as much as possible and interact with him as much as possible. This is vital for his brain development. Allow him to play on the floor. This helps him stretch his arms and legs and is also essential to learn the art of roll over. Last but not the least, do not forget to cuddle your five month old baby as often as you can.
